Our local public utility finally got their 'Green Power' offering online this last month, so we just signed up. It's only an extra $10/month for us and subsidizes wind and solar projects currently in the works. I don't believe that guarantees us renewable power personally for the future, but it's a step toward getting more of it online.

From their web site, basically smaller dams, yes. They're "low impact" classified by federal regs.

There's no biomass in the Bullfrog power mix. Hydroelectric & wind.

That's a really good way to look at this as well.
